Gorgeous Fabric!!!
Seriously loved this dress!! The beading and fabric make it much dressier than most Lilly shifts, but it was comfortable and classic. Fit true to size and very comfortable to dance in! Received compliments all night - the fabric really makes it stand out! Would definitely rent again...in fact, I wish I just owned it!!

Even better in person!
I loved this dress! The material was heavy enough that it didn't wrinkle but still lightweight and comfortable for a July wedding! The great thing about renting Lilly's is that once you know your size, you can never go wrong with her dresses. Fit is consistent and true to size. One of my favorite rentals to date.

So many compliments!
Fit true to size- showed cleavage but not too much. A lot of people asked where I got my dress. Only annoying thing was the beaded collar sometimes flipped inward due to its weight- not much you can do about that though unless you stick it to your chest!

Every person I greeted gave me a compliment !
I rented the dress for my daughter's sweet 16. It was a perfect "hip mom" with glamor and because I my curves it turned out to be pretty sexy. I normally wear a 10 and with it being called a shift dress I thought it was more loose but it was pretty snug. I'm a 34 DDD. So I'd say if you have curves to go a size up and get a little more space to move.

Tornado, no power, candlelit dancing, but I also had an amazing dress!
The dress was absolutely beautiful. I changed my order from a 4 & 6 to a 2 & 4 because of the other reviews. I'm very glad I did. The 2 was just a little tight around the chest, but fit great around my mid-section, whereas the 4 was just a little too big. Very beautiful dress and I received so many compliments about it!

Lots of compliments!
This is a beauty by Lilly and I am glad I rented it. The picture shown was the size 4 but I ended up changing into the 6 during cocktail hour( we were staying at the venue) the 6 gave me a little more room. Both fit great but I am not one to wear very fitting outfits. The neckline is gorgeous and this is a steal if you want to wear Lilly but don't want to pay full price!

Great dressy dress, overall five stars!
Size 2 fit me perfectly (5'8", 130 lbs, 34B, long waisted) although I normally wear a size 4. I was really pleased that the dress was long enough in the waist. It has horizontal darts at the top of the hipbones so the dress pulled in well at the waist and still laid flat across the hips. This seemed like a high quality dress made to be flattering. The beading at the neckline made it dressy but not goofy or cheap. The fabric is an iridescent aqua blue, fully-lined. The only slight problem I had was that one side of the neckline in front tended to curl under.

Great time, great dress! Tons of compliments.
Beautiful dress! Loved the color and the material, it was very flattering and formal but also comfortable! I got so many compliments on this dress. This was my first time doing Rent the Runway and I will definitely be doing it again. I should have gotten the zero, the 2 was a little big for me through the sides and stomach area, but it worked out great.

Honestly it wasn't the most flattering dress for someone who feels like they have a little too much going on in the midsection - I didn't feel super confident, but it looked fine. The fabric is thick, which helped a little. If I wouldn't have felt so large, it is a really beautiful dress.

This is a great dress, but Lilly shifts always run large. You could size down. This dress has seen a bit of use but it is still lovely.

Versatile Dress
I wore this for family photos then my son's baptism. It was great for both occasions and photographs very well. It's a little loose around the midsection but it didn't bother me.

Perfect for beach front semi-formal military event.
Typically I wear a 6, but I always order the 4 and 6. In this dress, the 4 fit much better than the 6 without being too tight. I saw other reviews said the arm holes were tight, but I didn't find that to be the case. The color is more aqua than the professional photos show. However, that was evident in the other reviewers photos. Perfect be achy color, but with the silver sparkle it seemed a little more formal as it needed to be for my event.

I really enjoyed wearing this dress. It has the perfect amount of shine. The beading on top seemed very, very easily damaged.

Beautiful Sparkle
This was a beautiful dress. I normally wear a 6 which fit great! I chose to wear the 8 because it added a little more length that I found appropriate for the wedding. Just a gorgeous dress with many, many compliments. I started out wearing with heels, later in the evening switched to sparkle flip flops and still gorgeous!

Dress to wear to an evening wedding on the coast.
It was very comfortable and stood out amongst the darker colored dresses. The waist, however, was a tad short for me. I have a long torso so it didn't sit quite right. But that was okay because it had plenty of room in the stomach to allow me to enjoy the meal and cake without sucking in the rest of the evening!

Color was great!
I usually wear an 8, but the 6 fit better. ( I'm smaller in the bust area). There were two strange horizontal darts at hip height that sort of had the effect of having some bulky underwear lines.

This dress looked stunning on! I wore it for my bridal shower and felt beautiful!
This dress fit beautifully, even with a smaller waist and curvy hips! It hugged all the right places and was very comfortable, I even kept it on for a night out on the town!! I would definitely recommend this dress rental to my friends! I was complimented on it all day and even had people looking at RTR for the first time at the shower they were so intrigued by it! Great experience for my second RTR and I will be using this site again soon!

Size runs very large for Lilly
I usually wear Lilly dresses and got the same size I always wear but this cut is super wide. There was no way I could pull it off the stomach area down was noticeably large and so wide it wasn't flattering. Unfortunately the size down was not available so I was unable to wear this dress.

Honeymoon Photos
I rented this dress for honeymoon photos in Disney. The dress was snug around my hips, but fit well. The attached rhinestones I thought were silver, but they were actually clear. I had no disappointments with this dress!

Fun summer dress!
I rented this dress for my informal backyard groom's dinner, and it was a hit! The fabric and beading sparkle, and the blue and silver colors felt bridal. If you're small chested, consider wearing a strapless bra with some padding to fill out the bust a bit. I'm usually a 4, and the dress fit well overall.

Great summer wedding dress!
I ordered a 4 and 6 based on the reviews and my large hips. The size 4 was a bit loose and long for my petite frame. The material was also somewhat worn and fraying, and not as sturdy as I was hoping for. I would've liked to size down to a 2. However, the dress worked well overall and I got a ton of compliments on it. I'd recommend it for a range of spring/summer events!

This dress was very flattering and forgiving.
I wore this to a Key West wedding and it was the perfect dress. my hips are narrow so this was slightly roomy through the abdomen/hip area which was so comfortable. It is a little shorter than I would normally wear for a special occasion but I wore it with silver flat sandals and it looked amazing.

Beautiful & flattering dress for a spring/summer wedding!
This was my first RTR experience, and I selected this dress for an April wedding. I intended to order a 6 with a 4 as a backup however I waited too long to book and was only able to get the 4. This ended up being ok as the dress runs a tad large which made for a perfect fit on me. I have a mostly athletic build but am larger up top, and this dress was pretty perfect. It was tight in the bust but not uncomfortable and fit well through the rest of the body. I was very pleased with the color, style, and fit and I thought it looked just as pictured online. I was comfortable and received many compliments on the dress throughout the evening. I paired it with nude slightly shimmery pumps, gold accessories, light pink/gold earrings, and a white cardigan as a coverup. I was thrilled with my first RTR experience and loved this dress. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone! 5' 7" 145lbs 32D Athletic Build

This dress looked and felt expensive; I felt so clever for having rented such a stunner!
This dress was SO flattering! It has a great shape and the fabric was thick and gracious. It was comfortable to dance in too! I selected "runs large" because I haven't worn a size 6 since 2007. After reading some of the other reviews, I ordered a 6 and an 8 (as opposed to 8 and a 10). When I zipped up that size 6, it definitely put an extra pep in my step! My husband called this my "frozen" dress, but the silver/ice blue combo was perfect for a spring wedding. And the jewels at the neckline were stunning! Loads of compliments all night!

festive and fancy without being fussy!
I loved the way this fit - the fabric and cut give you a nice shape without being clingy or tight. I sized up to wear while pregnant and it was super cute. The dress has so much pizazz going on that all you need are some heels and a bracelet and you're ready to party. Received tons of compliments.

This dress really stunned. Got so many compliments and the pictures don't do it justice.
Perfect for a summer wedding or dressy event. The dress sparkles and fits very nicely. I usually wear between a size two and four, but opted to go with the two for a more form fitted look. I had no issues with it and absolutely would recommend this dress to anyone. You'll get lots of compliments!
